19 May Seal Slaughter
The Canadian Government is still allowing thousands of baby seals to be killed annually for their soft fur. Outrage from many quarters means that many of the markets have completely dried up. The European Union, the USA and Russia have all banned the import of seal fur and growth in the Chinese market is nowhere near as large as expected.
Sadly, politicians still defend and put money into this slaughter in a bid to win vital swing seats in this region.
Pressure needs to be maintained to finally see an end to this cruel slaughter. You can help by signing the petition from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
